Unlikely Bedfellows

Early this morning I watched a recording of last night’s rugby World Cup match between France and Italy, and before my afternoon’s viewing of the games between Wales and Georgia and England v. Samoa, walked around our warm, sun-filled, plot to photograph

another selection of unlikely garden bedfellows, each of which bears a title in the gallery.

This evening we all enjoyed Jackie’s meal of her well filled mound of beef and onions stacked beneath short crust decorated pastry; crisp roast red potatoes; Brussels sprouts, carrots, and broccoli al dente; and thick, meaty gravy, with which she finished the Blush and I finished the Bordeaux.


  1. The unlikely garden bedfellows are lovely! I especially smiled at the Pineapple Plant and The Generous Gardner. πŸ™‚ I always love seeing Mrs. Popple! She’s so beautiful! πŸ™‚ And the Virginia Creeper is such a great climber! πŸ™‚

    Can I have seconds on the Brussels Sprouts, please?! πŸ™‚

  2. Gorgeous flowers.. Derrick… And delicious evening meal Derrick… I must get back into making a meat and potato pie again… You’ve inspired me, or Jackie has tell her .. πŸ™‚ xx

  3. It is a refreshing flowery treat. While the longer focal length has muted the background in most of those shots, the bokeh in the Virginia Creeper image is beautiful.

  4. Your garden is more beautiful than ever! And your photography captured the beauty stunningly! Thank you for sharing. Happy Sunday, Derrick!

  5. That’s the thing with Jackie, driving, cooking, photographing, gardening . . .
    If she’s not busy next week do you think she has time to sort of the England XV? They need help. πŸ™‚
